The son is a teacher at Florence, South Carolina, and the daughter is an instructor at Atlanta University. Her husband, W. C. Lewis is a retired faculty member from South Carolina State.

Helen Dobbins Dobbs of Cleveland, Ohio, and a Shaw University graduate of 1922, has won rewarding recognition as a writer of poetry. She credits all of her success and inspiration for the hundreds of poems to her participation in contests beginning when she won her first prize for a true story written while she was a student at Shaw University. Since that time she has seen her work in print 18 different times. Her most recent accomplishment has been the setting to music of two of her poems. Her poems appear in many anthologies, best known among them are the lyre ''Life" and "Some- thing Beautiful" which appear in American Voices of 1945, "Men In A Shell" and "Aviation" appear in the 1944 compilation of the same book and the 1936 volume carries "Free", a ballard of America's founding.

Brooks of Monrovia, Liberia, Africa, and a graduate of Shaw University in 1949 has recently received a law degree and also the M.A. degree in political science from the University of Wisconsin. Angie Brooks came to this country through the interest of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Jordan of Ridgeway, North Carolina, who because of her splendid record in Liberia, offered her a college scholarship at Shaw University. This scholarship was supplemented by some work on the part of the student. She completed her college work in less than three years and left one of the best student records in recent years. She is now taking a post graduate course in London England, and when this is completed, she will take up her official duties as the only woman lawyer in Liberia. The Reverend W. A. Pittard, a native of Mecklinsburg County, Virginia, and a graduate of the 1896 class of Shaw University, has served as the State Statistician and Historian of the West Virginia Baptist State Convention for 28 years. Reverend Pittard began his teaching career in Wakefield, North Carolina where he became the founder of the school in that community. He was married there to Miss Aurelia Foster. He joined the A. F. and A. M. Masonic lodge, and is still an active member of that organization. In 1907 he established his residence in West Virginia, and in addition to his teaching profession, he assumed the pastorate of two churches, connected himself with the Baptist Convention, and the Flat Top Association. Six churches have been founded and erected under his guidance. Shaw University Bulletin 7 An unusual story of the accomplishments of an alumnus of Shaw University has just reached our attention. A recent issue of the Golds- boro News Argus tells about the Choir For Negro Mental Patients, which was organized by the Reverend J. S. Brown of Goldsboro, who is Chaplain at the State Hospital for the Colored Insane. The Reverend Mr. Brown is a graduate of Shaw University in the class of 1937. Realizing the importance of music in the llife of the Negro, he has used the choir and a glee club as a medium through which the patients may express themselves. This effort has proved most rewarding as eight of the choir members have gone home, and others are back on the road to recovery. This group of forty-two voices not only furnishes music for the regular services, but the members choose their own selections, serve as ushers, singers, and appear on programs to pray or speak. It is interesting to note that, in an audience of around 700 patients, the service remains quiet and reverent. The pianist for the chorus is also a patient, who was an advanced music student prior to her commitment to the hospital. Shaw University is proud to bring to the attention of the alumni and friends, this worthy achievement of the Reverend Mr. Brown. Miss Annette F. Somerville, a staff member of the Norfolk Journ- al and Guide for fourteen and one half years, is a graduate of the normal department of Shaw Uni- versity in the class of 1922. Miss Somerville is at present conducting a weekly column in the paper, "Social Chat in Portsmouth", which has to do with the social activities in that city. She is choir directress at the St. John Baptist Church in Portsmouth where she has served three choirs a total of twentv six vears. Shaw University Bulletin Mrs. Helen M. Pollock, a gradu- ate of the summer school session of 1949, is a loyal contributor to the Shaw University Alumni Asso- ciation.

Shaw University Bulletin 11 FORMAL OPENING A more than capacity audience of Shaw University students and faculty were present at the formal opening exercises of the University's 87th Academic session, which were held Wednesday morning, Septem- ber 24th at 11:00 o'clock in Greenleaf Auditorium. The principal address was delivered by Dr. Marguerite S. Frierson, professor of education, Fayetteville State Teachers College, Fayetteville, a former instructor at Shaw.

She is also a member of the Pi Lamda Theta Honor Society- Dr. Frierson, speaking on the subject "Re-thinking Our Values", said that the American college student has come to be known as a light hearted individual, whose immaturity and adolescence continue throughout college. "The college has nutured and protected the student to the extent that it is the general opinion that we should protect the college student." She called attention to the lack of concern in students for serious world political problems, in contrast with the attitude of foreign students. "Values", she said that need consideration are: (1) Prize the right to engage in independent thinking. Be able to suspend judgment. (2) The right to make choices. Get a balance in what things are important things. (3) Get a sense of integrity, which will be shown in the attitudes that we take in our jobs and community problems. "Problems of 1952 place heavy demands on this generation of students to re-think their values." In conclusion, she pointed out that many Shaw men and women have distinguished themselves in life, and said, "We welcome you to join us in re-thinking values, and to come out with answers as to how you can best serve as men and women close to God to go out to make a better world." Members of the faculty and staff of the University were introduced to the students by President W. R. Strassner, who brought greetings prior to the address. The Rev. Moses N.
